Who loves Caramel?

 You have to love Pinterest!!!  So many cool ideas to be found.  This one is a keeper.  My family are not huge fans of cake icing.  My husband, especially, hates the stuff gooped on thickly.  What he does like is caramel between the cake layers and then confectioners sugar sprinkled on top of the cake.  The only problem is caramel is a bear to make.  You have to boil a can of condensed milk and cross your fingers that it does not explode during the process.  Until now that is.....
Get a few cans of condensed milk, pull the labels off and put them in your crock pot.  Fill the crock pot with water - enough to cover the cans!  This is an IMPORTANT step.  The cans must be covered.  Then you put your crock pot on low for 8 to 10 hours.
 Take them out once the time is up and hey presto, you have caramel.
It tastes so very good!!!  Give it a try!
